I read this for book club. It was a good discussion book. The characters were diverse and well developed. We enjoyed them very much. Even though this was fiction I found myself weighing events against the history of the Cheyennes. Some events were a little far fetched, but all in all it was a good read not without humor.

In 1854, a Cheyenne chief proposed an admirably forward-thinking plan to the US government that would foster cultural understanding and assimilation between Native Americans and whites: one thousand willing white women to be exchanged as brides for Cheyenne warriors. This is the story of one white woman’s experience had the US government taken the proposal even halfway seriously. Our heroine, May Dodd, can’t imagine anything worse than the insane asylum she’s currently living in, and with some excitement enlists herself in the “Brides for Indians” program. She faithfully journals her extraordinary experiences living with the Cheyenne and of her new husband Little Wolf, unaware of the legacy she will leave behind. A fun and engaging read -- one can’t help but wonder, ’What if?’

As part of the Brides for Horses Program, this fictional account of May Dodd tells the story of a white woman becoming a Chippewa.

This book is sexually graphic in nature and attributes the Cheyenne with many inhuman practices. I could only wonder about the accuracy of the information.
